English: Colonel David Jewett was an American , accused of piracey by both the USA and Portugal, who played a notable role in the history of the sovereignty dispute between Great Britain and Argentina. He commanded the pirate Frigate Heroína that visited the Falkland Islands in 1820, raised the first Argentine flag on the islands, and claimed the islands for the United Provinces of South America (one of the precursor states of Argentina),. Argentine authors including José María Rosa claim he was ordered to do so by Manuel de Sarratea but other researchers such as Pascoe and Pepper point out there is no documentary evidence to support this. He did not inform Argentina in his report.
